Notes

*** This seed includes only disc 1. The other discs were left untouched.
*** http://db.etree.org/shn/17691 is the optimal seed for discs 2 & 3 (for now...)



This seed fixes the problems with disc 1 of the previous seeds.
Marcello Gasperini's DAT tape -supplied by Jens Tilsner- was used as the primary source.
http://db.etree.org/shn/17691 supplied patches to a few problems on the Gasperini DAT.

For what it's worth, the Gasperini DAT seems to be a different transfer from one and the same reel source.
There is a reel stop/start that is not present on #17691.

Thanks to the contributors, and enjoy the result!

Innovative, but boring. Garcia wasn't that good a jazz player on his own, and there's no R&B here.

Wow, this is very very cool. I'm a big fan of both Bob and Pig, but yet... this is a peek into an alternate universe had the Dead taken a different path. And its fantastic. Mesmerizing...

Subject: First Cosmic Charlie
This is not a Dead show -- the Dead were on a break. They had just finished an awesome tour (check out the August shows here, or Two From the Vault) and were now in town recording Aoxomoxoa and regrouping. It’s almost a power trio: just guitar, bass, and drums, except it sounds like both drummers. No Bobby or Pigpen or Tim Constanten. Here, they were trying out new material and just plain jamming and fooling around at the Matrix, a tiny space owned by Marty Balin –- it sounds like 20 people in the audience.

The most notable thing here is the first known performance of Cosmic Charlie, which went on Aoxomoxoa. Jerry doesn’t have all the words yet, and hasn’t figured out the ending.

The best performance is a 4-star Death Don’t have no Mercy – nice Jerry vocal. Dark Star is not very good, especially compared to the excellent versions they did in August/September. Jerry’s playing a lot of rhythm guitar in these songs, strumming chords.

In Track 5, Jerry says “this one’s largely Experimental so be warned.” This is call the Seven, but their really trying to figure out how to play in 7/4 time. This is really a rehearsal in front of a few people.

There’s more cuts on another version here:

There, Jack Casady of the Jefferson Airplane plays a few jams with Jerry.
